Nue Wilde is the new project from our friend Ben, formerly of Oro en
Paz. He's sourcing fruit from organic vineyards and making wine in an
old-school, hands off fashion. Like this gorgeous rosé, which is the
Molly Ringwald of wine -- pretty in pink, through and through. The
color is pure ballerina pink, the package elegant and old school, the
smell, pure joy in the form of watermelon Jolly Rancher. It's round
and lush on the palate, with a decadent blend of watermelon,
strawberry custard, salted caramel and lemon zest. He only made 20
cases, we got 1/4 of his production, and it'll be gone quickly -- so
grab more now if you're digging it.
